Create A Spark #3

On the 9th October 2011, Reading Family Church (the church i'm part of) celebrated 10 years of meeting on Sundays. We met together at Reading Town Hall and enjoyed looking back on what God has done amongst us.

What was a highlight for many people was when people came out and shared how their lives had been transformed by Jesus using a piece of cardboard and a few words.

He makes beautiful things out of dust... An amazingly glorious thought

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
(2 Cor 5:17)

Create A Spark #2

It could be said that being creative requires you to think outside the box, whoever designed this not only thought outside the box, they turned the box into something else entirely.

Create A Spark #1

As i try to keep stirring myself in creativity, i thought blogging on things that begin to create "sparks" in me could prove to be helpful. So here's Create A Spark #1

Genesis 1:1 - In the beginning God CREATEd the heavens and the earth.

The word "creativity" never appears in the bible (not even in The Message translation) and yet we see creativity bursting throughout the bible. The description in Genesis of how God formed the universe is quite breath taking when you sit and think about it.

In perhaps the biggest understatement ever written, Genesis 1:16 - "God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.", we see He created these out of nothing...

There was no one else's work who he pinched, no magazine who's ideas He incorporated into His own, no one else's who inspired Him to be creative, as God is creative, it is what makes Him who He is...

So many times i catch myself trying to find someone or something that will help spark off something in me, when actually what i should be doing is coming back to God, letting Him captivate me and marvelling at Him.

When you see who He is, what He has done and is doing, creativity will flow...

Reaching Alice, Christmas Film

Reaching Alice Official Trailer from The Tungsten Collective on Vimeo.

Christmas may be over, but this little video caught my attention. Willow Creek are a church that does things really well and it would seem they created an entire film for their Christmas meetings. Would love to see the full feature at some point...

Maybe in the future there will be an RFC Christmas film...
